“They say the eyes are the windows to the soul. As a young child, visiting an optometrist, I was always fascinated by the job, however, I never thought I would eventually become an optometrist. During my tertiary education, pursuing a double major degree, I stumbled upon one Optics course that would change my life. By the next academic year, I was enrolled as an optometry student in the University of the West Indies.
Optometry is a very rewarding career as it gives me an opportunity to make a difference in a patient’s sight and eye health. Working at 800 Eyes, I not only get to pursue my passion for helping people but also developed a love for meeting and interacting with new and past patients everyday.”
